MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace Wonders if Women in Trump’s Family Are ‘Dead Inside’


MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace wants to know how the women in President Donald Trump‘s family can possibly cope with his bad behavior again and again.

Speaking with Vanity Fair reporter Emily Fox Thursday, Wallace wondered whether they were simply void of all emotions or possibly receiving payouts.

“What do they do on a day like today?” she asked. “Are they just the most stoic human beings, are they numb, are they dead inside, are they paid off, I mean, what’s their deal?”

Fox responded affirmatively.

“Yes, yes, and yes, but I think they do not see President Trump the way that all of us see President Trump,” she told Wallace.” “They have such a distorted image of who he is that they don’t have the kind of reaction that we do.”

Finding Trump’s myriad of offensive remarks and actions toward women appalling, Fox said his words have actually made her physically uncomfortable. Juxtaposed with his attorney, Rudy Giuliani‘s comments about having no respect for porn actresses such as Stormy Daniels, Fox added that the president and his lawyer seemed to be on the same level regarding their perception of the opposite sex.

“The president has incredibly sexist, misogynistic views about how he treats women in general, we’ve heard the way that he talks about women, calling them dogs and pigs, talking about grabbing them by their genitals,” she said. “So, he may not have shared these views about these specific women, but the way that the president talks about women and behaves towards women, it’s not so out of line with what Rudy Giuliani said, and, what he said about Stormy Daniels was disgusting, gave me a pit in my stomach from the second I woke up this morning, but my first reaction was, this is so disrespectful to the first lady.”
